Have you ever set the reply permission for your tweet (post) to be able to choose who can reply to your tweet and who can’t without setting your Twitter account private? Every tweet you tweet goes global, so it means that if you set your Twitter account public anyone can reply to your tweet.
What if for your tweet you don’t want everyone to reply OR you want only those people can reply who you follow OR you want only the specific people/person can reply OR you want no one can reply! Yes, you can choose who can reply to you tweet and who can’t.
There are 3 options for a tweet reply:
- People you follow
- Only people you mention
Everyone is the default permission for every tweet. It means anyone can reply to your tweet.
People you follow means only those people can reply who you are following.
Only people you mention means only those or he/she can reply who you will mention in your tweet like @IamMeerBasit etc. This option is pretty useful because sometimes you don’t want the unnecessary participation of other people.
If you don’t mention anyone in your tweet and set the permission “Only people you mention” then no one can reply to your tweet.
- To set the reply permission for a tweet click on the “Everyone can reply” link.
- You can see three tweet reply options i.e. Everyone, People you follow, only people you mention. Choose the reply option.
- Once you write your tweet, click on the Post button.
